Many of the items listed in this checklist are available at our product website PrepareDirect.  We will be adding new items and categories continually so please visit us. This exceptionally comprehensive essential checklist for emergency preparedness should be a crucial assist in your emergency, survival and outdoor adventure planning – study it carefully!
For most people planning for emergencies is similar to planning for a camping trip or any other outdoor adventure where the normal conveniences of home are not available. Although this list is an authoritative and comprehensive compilation of crucial supplies for emergency preparedness and outdoor adventure, these suggestions focus on basic necessities, and are not intended to be an exhaustive and detailed list of all choices, as each person or group has their own special requirements and needs. Be clear about the time factors, persons involved, and situations that you anticipate will occur in an emergency or an outdoor experience.
As a complement to this checklist I highly recommend answering the questions in: The 12 Crucial Questions of Preparedness Planning article.
When your health and survival during a medical emergency is at stake, you don’t want to rely on cheap or inadequate medical supplies. It is essential to be kept informed during an emergency with friends, family, and appropriate governmental agencies and emergency organizations.

This is an essential category to address when anticipating any situation where you may be in darkness.
Numerous unforeseen situations or just routine conditions occur during an emergency or during an outdoor adventure. It is one of the most (if not the most) comprehensive lists available – thankfully copied by many. While there are numerous options to choose from in each category, use this guideline of essentials to ensure you have evaluated all the possibilities given the scenarios and circumstances for which you are preparing and provisioning, whether for preparedness planning or outdoor adventuring. Items with a double asterisk ** indicates items for your bag whose quantity will depend on the length of your anticipated emergency scenario.
This category must be accessed carefully depending upon the length of time of the emergency or outing, and severity of circumstances you anticipate might occur. Not only for a sense of security and comfort, but to be able to see clearly and act accordingly if emergencies happen in the dark. Researching reliable and trustworthy information sources is a vital component to preparedness and outdoor survival planning.

The equipment to include in your emergency kit or camping supplies list will be very comparable.
Many of these items will be essential for bartering if supplies are exhausted and the emergency you are preparing for is long term. Establishing family communication and reunion plans is also essential for security and peace of mind.
Differences and variations will generally depend upon the severity and length of time you anticipate for your emergency scenario. Long term emergencies and outdoor explorations will require, in addition to this list, more extensive planning and provisioning.
